Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) was appointed to the powerful House Committee on Appropriations, the body that writes the laws that direct federal funding.


“In the new Democratic majority, I am honored to have an extraordinary opportunity to advocate for south Floridians at the highest level of government advancing investments in health care, education, better infrastructure and global peace.”


Frankel’s service has well positioned her for this new assignment. As a former State Representative and Mayor of West Palm Beach, Congresswoman Frankel brings valuable insight into the needs of local and state government. Now in her fourth term, she previously served on the Foreign Affairs and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees, as well as Chairing the Democratic Women’s Working Group.


Rep. Frankel will serve on the following subcommittees:

·         Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies

·         Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies

·         State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs
